Measurements refer to body size not garment dimensions. Wearing ease alters depending on style and fabric.
Chest: Take measurement around the fullest part of the chest, just under the arms and across the shoulder blades.
Sleeve: With elbow bent, measure from centre back of neck (at C7 vertebra) to elbow and down to prominent outside wrist bone.
Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waist (natural waistline).
Inseam: Measure a pair of well fitting pants from crotch to bottom of leg.

I have had Mont gear since the 1990s and in particular the 'Graphic Adventure Light Pants' for travelling the last 25 years predominately overseas. My oldest pair has a black stripe from one pocket across the back to the pocket on the other side. I have purchased newer ones (both long and short) over the years - graphite & Sage - as well as replacement shirts. However, my original pair remains my go-to pants when travelling on a plane (to my wife's disgust!). For your interest, my attire when boarding an international flight is: Mont trousers and long sleeve shirt over a MacPac wool skin garment, Salomon hiking boots with thick woollen socks from Crookwell (they have a spinning press at the back of the shop), a Rodd & Gunn Sweat Top (NZ) and a lightweight waterproof Dry as a Bone outer Jacket in a 33 ltr Berghaus carry on backpack. Like most things in life, there is never a single answer/option to most things. In outdoor equipment Mont is on my "never leave home without them' list.
Dear People at Mont, This morning I went to put on a pair of your long pants and while standing there I reflected on where these pants had been and how old they were. We have been to NZ, Nepal, in and out of saltwater on fly fishing trips in some pretty inhospitable places. While they are a bit faded and well worn, there isn’t a stitch missing (unlike some of your big name competitors) and they remain my favour regardless of where I am, as do your shorts which are equally bomb proof. This of course is a huge disadvantage to you, because if you have made stuff to last, its unlikely that I need a new pair. Fortunately in my case you can never have enough. So thank you, take care and thanks for your emails and gear updates, often the highlight of a difficult day.
The title says it all. I gave up wearing jeans years ago and I do indeed wear these every single day :-) They last for years, dry quickly, look good and just do the job, on expedition or around town.
Lightweight and robust - these are fast drying, comfortable, cool trousers. I do not particularly like wearing trousers on hot days but these are light enough as great trousers for sun protection for bushwalking and travelling in SE Asia. They fit a little large and are not suitable for really cold weather on their own. I've had 3 pair over the last few years but they get a flogging, the first thing to go is the belt line. the rest of the material is pretty robust - especially for the weight and ventilation. They could do with knee and seat reinforcement for hardcore walking but then you would lose the lightweight, quick-drying and airy feel. Highly recommended.
And I own several of them! They are long lasting, extremely comfortable, and considering how long I get from a pair they are incredibly cheap!
I've had Adventure Light Pants that I use for fieldwork in all kinds of bushland, sometimes very scrubby. They're only now starting to get a bit ragged after something like 12 years of often tough service. I'm back to get some more. They're not cheap to buy but because they last, they're worth the price.
Light quick drying and tough. Active crotch and well designed pockets so you don't lose a wallet passport or phone when travelling. Windproof and breathable and with thermals underneath are cosy in winter. Hard to fault - Only criticism with my model (est around 2013) is the metal press stud irritated my abdominal skin once sweaty so I covered it up with an iron on patch(carefully as they are Nylon)
